Employment Opportunities

Ongoing: Educator search | Galapagos Islands 

Galapagos Conservancy (GC) and the Scalesia Foundation (SF) are always on the lookout for highly experienced, mission-driven educators to support the Education for Sustainable Development in Galapagos (ESDG) Program and/or work at the Tomás de Berlanga demonstration school. While there are no positions open at this time, we would welcome inquiries from professionals with the following skill sets:

  • K-12 bilingual education (teaching degrees/certification required)
  • Educational leadership training (focused on school directors and peer mentors)
  • Instructional coaching: Math, Literacy, Science and Social Studies
  • ELS instructors (certification required)

For 2018, we anticipate hires in all of these areas. To learn more about such opportunities, please send your CV and a letter of interest to: tdbproject@galapagos.org. Thanks in advance for your interest!

Volunteer Opportunities

The only area of conservation in Galapagos for which Galapagos Conservancy coordinates volunteers is our Giant Tortoise Restoration Initiative (GTRI). A two month minimum commitment in Galapagos is required to be considered for all GTRI volunteer positions. If you are able to meet the minimum time commitment, please download this form and use the guidelines to apply to be a volunteer for this project. Please note: We receive many applications, and only those applicants that meet the needs of our staff will be contacted – we kindly ask that you do not follow-up unless contacted.

If you are interested in volunteering for other opportunities in Galapagos, you will need to contact the organizations that run those programs directly. Because these and other local Galapagos-based organizations have needs that are constantly changing, we do not list them here; you will need to research and seek them out on your own.
